NCCP in Judo
The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) in Judo is the result of a partnership between Judo Canada and the Coaching Association of Canada. This program enables participants to learn both in a classroom setting and on the mat what it means to be a coach/instructor in judo. The NCCP is the recognized national standard for coaching in Canada.

The Competition Development Coach NCCP technical course is now delivered by Judo Canada to eligible and interested candidates. A summary overview of this course is available here:
Professional Development (PD) – As of January 2014 a registry of the Professional Development activities will be offered via the CAC Locker Database. Courses that are qualified as PD activities will be registered in the Database and automatically update coaches profiles. It becomes a duty of certified NCCP facilitators to enter the data in the system. It is the responsibility of Provincial/Territorial judo associations to publish a list of available activities. The general information on what qualifies as PD activity, you find in Judo Canada’s NCCP policy on page 16.
As of January 1st, 2014, all coaches who are currently certified in the CAC Database (regardless of whether the certification is in the OLD NCCP (level 1 through 3) or the new NCCP – Assistant; Instructor and Competition Development Coach), will have 5 (five) years to accumulate the minimum required number of points to have their certification standards automatically renewed for a further 5 years. Please visit page 15 of the NCCP policy to determine the number of points you need to accumulate to have your certification renewed automatically. The renewal will take place automatically on the fifth anniversary of the start day.
